Here most modern plumbing is made with pvc, old houses have galvanized or even some copper plumbing. Sometimes its just patches and welds.

However you can find the odd installations.

In this case, the old plumbing was galvanized. The vertical stem that feeds the showerhead, in particular.

The valve assembly was all-copper. The two were fitted together.

That reminds me of the plumbers here.

They were called because two radiator valves leaked (all valves, pipes and radiators were iron). Instead of fixing them, they replaced the radiators with ones with brass valves. Later, they were called because the new valves still leaked. This time, they managed to fix one of them.

One of the valves still leaks, but not enough to bother calling them again.

Ungh, that reminds me, I need to tighten down my showerhead....

That's the entire span of my understanding of plumbing. Fortunately, I found an adjustable wrench just laying in a field the other day, so now I have an adjustable wrench with which to tighten down my showerhead!

My wife calls me to ask a favor, she is doing half shifts on a drugstore nearby. She found a dog that obviously miss from home. I really, REALLY hope the owners appear soon. This is the ball of fur:

Perfect size though.  Maybe you can find a way to let your boy have him.  idk.

I was always told that it's impossible to have another pet until it suddenly just happens.

Owners already appeared and I gave him back to them. It was a very well behaved and calm dog, with an obsession about peeing everything, guess is normal being in a new environment. Oh his real name is Coco, Perry sounds a million times better.

Perhaps when pete grows up and we leave our chronic state of poverty he'll get a dog, but me? Laika was our "first kid". She sleep with both of us as a puppy of only a few weeks old. She went trough hell and back with us and one day almost lost an eye defending Pedro from a dog trice her size. She was overly angry, anxious and filled with hate for everyone and everything that wasn't pete, my wife or me. The space she left in my heart won't ever be filled by any other creature (I'm sorry for you Tortugina), there will be no more dogs for me.

In Ecuador, a gang war (between Los Lobos en Los Choneros, associated with the Mexican Sinaloa and Jalisco cartels) inside a prison got 116 people killed, of whom 5 were decapitated, and at least 80 people injured.

Ecuador has declared national state of emergency in all prisons. This allows the government to send in the army.
The military is now surrounding the prisons. In a press conference, the government was not yet able to declare that they have regained control of the prisons.

Equadorian and Venezuelan prisoners apparently have very different ideas about how gang bangs should go down

Hahahaha.......

We have our fair share of massacres too. A particularly famous one I recall a guy got decapitated, then they opened his abdomen, stuck his head there and then sewed the whole thing again and paraded the body around the yard.
